How Do Condo Board Applications Work in NYC Real Estate?

It’s a common misconception among buyers in NYC that a board package is only required for a co-op apartment. While a condo does not have the same broad discretion as a co-op to reject buyers, most condos still require buyers to complete and submit a board package. The condo board package in NYC is primarily an administrative exercise whereby you fill-in a basic application, sign a few pages and assemble various documents, such as your mortgage commitment letter. While a condo cannot reject you unless it agrees to buy the apartment, a condo board does have grounds to delay your closing indefinitely if you refuse to complete the purchase application.
